Event description

Description

In the first half of the 20th century Hampstead was home to some of the era's most pioneering artists. We will walk in the footsteps of the Slade School artists such as Mark Gertler, Stanley Spencer and R.W. Nevinson who socialised in Downshire Hill with the artistic Carline family and discuss the role that Roland Penrose and Fred and Diana Uhlman played in the art world. We will conclude with Modernists such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth who lived and worked in Belsize Park and the designers (many refugees) who stayed at the Isokon flats. The tour ends at the Isokon Gallery where you can view an exhibition of the work of George Adams.

This walk is from Hampstead Tube (outside High Street entrance) to near Belsize Park

Depending on the weather we shall also walk briefly on the Heath so dress suitably.



The walk is part of the Insiders/Outsiders Arts Festival

Insiders/ Outsiders is a nationwide arts festival taking place from March 2019 to March 2020 to celebrate refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture.
